Well, I've been playing bass for about 2 months now, yes, only two months. And well, basically, I need to have some tips on playing and getting better. To begin with, I decided to learn the major scales (not in major, but the major scales.) After about 3 days of doing that, I decided it wasn't helping at all. I picked up a book on bass, but after doing the same thing over and over again I realized I truly wasn't learning anything. I am pretty quick with my fingerpicking style, or my friends who play bass/guitar tell me so. So then I started having my friends who play bass come over, and they've been teaching me some songs. I learned how to slide with a Black Sabbath song, learned power chords with a Green Day song, and learned hammering with a Limp Bizkit song (even though I hate Limp Bizkit.) A friend of mine who him and his dad have been playing bass (and guitar) for over 10 years showed me some stuff, and they say I've been coming along quite quickly. But basically to get down to it, is there any exercises I should practice every day? Maybe a song that I should play over and over again? I'm just basically looking for some help.
